Nature stimulus enhancing birth experience

A fascinating report in HERD: Health Environments Research and Design Journal, reports results of research studying the influence of nature stimulus in enhancing the birth experience.

“These findings support the study hypothesis which states that the nature images would influence the labor experience positively. In addition, the findings emphasize the importance of incorporating non-pharmacological techniques in the labor and delivery room (LDR) units to soothe the pain. Adding nature imagery to the LDR environment can be one of these techniques.

At Argenta-Wellness we provide hospitals and delivery rooms, with beautiful images from nature. That’s what we do, we make lives better. Contact us to discuss how we can make the immediate world the babies you deliver into,  a better and more beautiful one.
